Letter from a Councillor Submitted by: bhsglos 03 10 2013 10:33
A rider reported a letter from a Councillor to her Yard proprietor, stating that horses were not to be ridden around a new housing estate. Horses count as vehicles, and can be ridden on any highway where cars are allowed (other than motorways) unless there a bylaw is displayed which is specific to that highway, banning this. In general, riding on the grass verge of a highway is permitted (though if the householder carefully mows the verge, it's considerate to keep off it) but it is against the law to ride on a footway or pavement, which is there to keep pedestrians safely separate from traffic.
